Perseids and Polestar

Perseids and Pole Star. Copyright 2008 Chris W. Johnson, All Rights Reserved.

Although only one of them is obvious, there are several Perseid meteors included in this composite of images captured between 4:19 and 5:06 AM on August 11, 2008, from slightly south of my old friend the windmill on the Bamberger Ranch Preserve. One perseid that is not obvious, but not hard to point-out, is one of the "flash bulb" type - it's located just a bit higher than Polaris, and about halfway between Polaris and the right edge.
